Magney Legacy Ridge Farm:  CSA #3


Dear CSA-ers,

The online market is now open for you to place your orders. This week’s preassembled bag includes Arugula, Batavia Lettuce Head, Green Onions, Swiss Chard, Dill, and Caraflex Cabbage.

Grilled Caraflex Cabbage
Ingredients: Caraflex (conehead) cabbage or Napa cabbage Olive oil Garlic powder Onion powder Sea salt Black pepper
Method: Cut the cabbage in half or quartered. Place in a plastic storage bag with some olive oil and the seasonings and shake until well-coated. Place the cabbage cut-side down on a hot grill and leave until it is fork tender, but still has a little crunch. Slice before serving or serve in wedges. This method also works great for peeled slices of Kohlrabi.

We’ve been reviewing a lot of feedback about the site and CSA process. We’d like to make the experience as user friendly as possible for you. As we’ve talked with some of you on a personal basis, it’s become evident that people prefer to interact with CSA in different ways. As it turns out, many people really liked the traditional CSA system where a preassembled bag arrives every week, whereas others have jumped on the opportunity to assemble custom bags from the available produce on the website. We want to provide you with the flexibility to do either should you wish. For this reason, we will be contacting you this week to answer personally any of your questions. We will also be conducting a survey about how you would prefer to use the service. The options are:

1.) “I would prefer to receive the preassembled bag each week.”
2.) “I would prefer to custom order my bag each week, but if I don’t, I do not wish to receive a bag that week.”
3.) “I would prefer to custom order my bags some weeks, but if I don’t, please send me the preassembled bag.”
Be thinking about which of these you would prefer. If you will be unavailable for a brief phone call, please let us know via email. We are always happy to answer any questions or concerns you might have.

As for the farm, our busy season is in full swing. We have planted tens of thousands of seeds in our outdoor beds this week. To name just a few, new varieties of carrots, beets, and greens mixes are on their way. We have some exciting things growing and we look forward to sharing them with you. Your investment in our farm through CSA has enabled us to add a couple new labor-saving tools this season, and we hope to return this investment to you through more top-quality produce. We thank you so much for helping us grow sustainable and organic agriculture in Western Kentucky and look forward to bringing you the fruits of this endeavor.

Sincerely,
The Magney Legacy Ridge Farm Team

Foothills Market:  The Market is Open!


Is it spring? Is it summer? Or is it still winter?

Mother Nature can’t seem to make up her mind, which is why farmers have greenhouses, poly-tunnels, and row cover! That makes it possible for Foothills Market to bring you fresh greens, no matter what the weather wants to do.

We have a variety of spring greens on the market again this week, to go along with our offerings of locally-grown meats and free-range eggs. Fill your online basket between now and Wednesday at 5:00 p.m., click the “Place your order” button, and we’ll have the order ready for pickup on Thursday afternoon.

Just FYI – we’ll soon be closing down this market and shifting over to the farmers’ market on the courthouse square for the season. The first weekend of the downtown market is May 4. Hope to see you there!
